Villa employee embezzled about 450 million of rental money

The villa employee, 34-year-old Domingus Seran, was arrested by the police for embezzling about 450 million rupees received from a Ukrainian tenant. The owner of the villa never received the money.

Domingus was arrested at a villa in Kerobokan on November 6, 2020, after information on his whereabouts emerged.

However, the incident itself began at the end of 2018. A Ukrainian citizen first transferred 50 million to the Indonesian for renting a villa at 7 Sri Rama street, and then on January 28, 2019, about 232 million rupees. Then, on November 15, 2019, the Ukrainian sent another 165 million rupees through mobile banking and the next day another 5 million.

In total, Domingus received Rs 451,906,000 (approximately USD 32,252) from the tenant.

On December 14, 2019, the owner of the villa came and locked the gates of the villa on the grounds that he did not receive any rent money. And after that he turned to the police in Kuta.

The attacker is charged under article 372 of the Indonesian Penal Code on embezzlement and fraud, with a maximum prison sentence of 4 years.
